    Overall, the entire creative team have put together an amazing issue of Harley Quinn. It's different to the Harley Quinn we all know and love, but the exclusion of the Joker obviously works in her favour and I'm thankful to the creators for giving her the opportunity to really show us what she can do out from the Joker's shadow. It's a real credit to DC as a whole, and I definitely can't wait to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    Harley Quinn may be a comedy book, but it consistently uses that humour to punch up with enough accuracy and power to make it the best pound for pound fighter in it's weight class. Read Full Review

    I confess to feeling tentative about this whole Gang of Harleys thing, but so far Conner and Palmiotti have made this work: the Gang is functioning without being an annoying distraction, Harley herself is still the focus of the book, and Captain Strong as a foe is fun and interesting: perfect for the boardwalk environment, and goofy enough without straight-up being a giant robot gorilla. Ending on another cliff-hanger, this story isn't over yet and I'm looking forward to seeing a possible team-up between Harley and Ivy as they race to rescue Harley's foundering gang.

    It's good to have Harley Quinn back. The series is adorable and funny in all the ways Deadpool isn't, at least in my opinion. I have to imagine Deadpool was what DC had in mind when they launched this comic, and I'm so pleased that Harley Quinn has surpassed the Merc with a Mouth. Read Full Review

    This issue showcases more of the potential in the idea of Harley Quinn leading a team of sidekicks. While the script sputters in spots, it continues the series' emphasis on zany adventures with a healthy dose of character drama to balance things out. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Jess Camacho Jul 16, 2015

    “Harley Quinn” #18 is a really nice looking comic but it fails in many ways as far as the writing goes. This is still one of DC's most fun series going so I'm not ready to give up on it just yet. Read Full Review

    I am hoping that Conner and Palmiotti make the Gang of Harley's really come together. Develop some individual characters and build real relationships with the zany Harley at the center of it all. Come on guys, bring back the magic! Read Full Review

    This issue was fun, but that's never been a problem for Harley.  I really want a better story to hilarity ratio in this book and this issue isn't quite there yet.  There was no problem with the art, however, especially Jed Dougherty's awesome Gotham as an old pirate movie scene.  If you are a fan of Harley and have been enjoying the Gang of Harleys story so far, you will not change your mind.  However, I don't see this issue winning any new fans.
